RIT junior forward Elijah Gonsalves scored a third-period power-play goal, but it was Canisius earning a 4-1 victory, Saturday night, in Atlantic Hockey play.
HOW IT HAPPENED
Canisius scored a short-handed goal to break a scoreless tie with 12:25 left in the second period.
The Golden Griffins kicked off a three-goal, third-period run with a power play with 9:36 on the clock and notched an even-strength goal 1:26 later.
Canisius took a 4-0 lead with 1:49 left in regulation, before Gonsalves broke the shutout with 22.5 seconds left in the game.
Gonsalves notched his second-straight game with a power play goal after also tallying a goal to go along with an assist in Friday night’s 5-2 setback with the host Golden Griffins.
After only scoring one power play goal in its first eight games, RIT has scored at least one in its last four games, including two in Friday’s night’s game.
RIT junior goaltender Kolby Matthews was credited with 29 saves as Canisius out-shot RIT, 33-29.
RIT hosts Holy Cross next Friday and Saturday (Nov. 19-20) for an Atlantic Hockey set. Faceoffs are set for 7:05 p.m. and 5:05 p.m., respectively.
